Warehouses are following the go green call.
Here are some greening solutions for warehouses. The first step towards achieving energy efficiency in warehouses is the heating and lighting segments. Installing photo sensor and motion sensor lighting eliminates excess use of energy for lighting.
Conserving heat through modern insulation techniques, landscaping, green roofing, and using HVAC system go a long way in containing heat within the warehouses for a longer period.
Another area where conservation can take place is recycling and reusing warehouse consumables. Going paperless by introducing ERP solutions for inventory management, using recycled material and biodegradable material for packaging, using reusable packaging in place of one-time use varieties wherever possible and finally recycling wood shipping pallets, are some solutions.
